# s-behav: fertility, in a wide view of an open system

<< Male  peacock  spiders  know  how  to  work  their  angles  and  find  their  light. The  arachnids,  native  to  Australia,  raise  their  derriere  —  or,  more  accurately,  a  flap  on  their  hind end  — skyward  and  shake  it  to  attract  females. Hairlike  scales  cover  their  bodies  and produce  the vibrant  colorations that make peacock spiders so striking >>
